Gas prices: A tale of two cities

Gas prices: A tale of two cities

On a family visit to Ottawa earlier this month I filled up my daughter’s car. Price paid: $1.05.9 per litre.

On our return home to the Island, three days later, I needed to fill up my own car. Price paid: $1.52.9 per litre, regular gas in both cases.

The oil companies call it “reacting to local market conditions”.

Roughly translated, “gouge the suckers for every penny we can, they can’t do a damn thing about it”.

There is no need to go to Russia to find an oligarchy, we have one right here in the petroleum industry.
